House Build week 4: Frame arrives!

Well the slab has dried and the wood has been delivered for the next stage.

On Monday they will start to build a timber frame that is a skeleton of the final house. The brickwork will then be built up and around this frame.

It usually takes 1-2 weeks to assemble and then we really will have a good idea of the size and shape of all the rooms.

This next month should be very exciting as we will see the house "grow" out of the ground. I hope you will enjoy the updates!
